half a season,
This review is from: Breaking Bad - Season 5* [DVD + UV Copy] (DVD)
just a heads up guys, if this dvd set comes out on the date advertised it will only be the first 8 episodes of season 5, the last 8 episodes of season 5 only start airing in summer, thats from AMC offical site, (network who make it), its either that or amazon have their dates wrong and this dvd set will have its release date changed! keep your eyes open before you buy! UPDATE!!! 17/4/13.... today AMC (network who make it) confirmed breaking bad series 5 will return to tv in the usa on sunday august 11th at 9pm!

I didn't see season 1 until a very long time after it aired so I can wait equally long for the whole of this season to appear at a decent price

Thanks to this prominent review there's no real excuse for buying this product under a misapprehension, as some are claiming to have done.
The problem is with the bizarre TV scheduling rather than the DVD producers as such, it seems to me.

Why release half a season on DVD and not the whole lot. Yes, TV scheduling, especially in America can be stupid, but then equally, why haven't DVD producers held off. If the answer isn't "money", then I'd like to know what it is.

There's no deception going on here. In effect there were six seasons to Breaking Bad. For complicated contractual reasons, the final season had to be split into two shorter seasons broadcast a year apart. Rather than call the last eight episodes 'Season Six', they are refered to as the 'Final Season'. I've also heard Vince Gilligan (the show's creator) refer to them as 'Season 5B'. In any case, the last sixteen episodes were always split into two in this way and this is reflected in the Blu - ray release. Interestingly they may have set a precedent. I've read rumours that the final season of Mad Men may also be split into two in this way.

Pricing a DVD box set of only 8 episodes the same as they charged for the previous series of 16 episodes seems like deception to me.
